It has been said not infrequently (and with ample cause) that only in America do people line up to trample one another for bargains the day after giving thanks for what they already have.
I couldn’t be dragged to the shopping mall on the day after Thanksgiving if you hitched me up to a tractor. But the occasion of Black Friday did get me wondering: What would be the horticultural equivalent of a doorbuster deal? Can you conceive of a gardening bargain that might make you get out in the frosty air with a sleeping bag and camp out next to the nursery’s door?
Magnolia stellata: Buy one, get one free?
Compost: Free while supplies last; bring your own shovel?
Conifers, 90% off?
What’s your gardening bargain fantasy?
